Reply with quote

I am installing the 7000 receiver and the external receiver of the DX7 on a Trex 450 se. Can anyone please tell me where is the best placement for the external RX. I have the main receiver under the battery tray and the JR gyro at the rear of the main frame. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks fellas. Question

I have seen most people ziptie it to the side of the frame in the rear.

I went with a different configuration, ESC up front Rx in the back. Gets the receiver & servo wires a little farther away from electrical noise from the motor. The second receiver is up onnthe upper frame.

Hi Crash and Dumb,

I appreciate the info and I have zipped it to the side frame. Works well, now all I have to do is hover this little beastie. I made a training gear out of 1/4" dowel and hard foam balls, I hope it's not to heavy for it.

I like your idea of the foam balls. I've been using wood dowels & a hula hoop. Rex 450 SEv2 lifts it no problem but the extra weight cuts batt pack life to about 6 minutes (with the ESC set to high cutoff). No matter, I don't think I'll need to use it for much longer. Worked on fine tuning the the head , tracking & getting rid of CCPM interactions so the bird should handle even better then first flights.
Can't wait to try it out but it's 20 deg. F. outside & blowing 15 to 25 MPH Sad

Hi DT, I found the foam balls at Wal-Mart, they are fairly hard so that they slide and they are used for ball hockey. A little larger than golf balls and very light.
